Sun all day and hot on potential
Today’s shrewd buyer is after value and properties that add further value, so this home with its big permitted sleepout, large deck and conservatory, and further potential to develop downstairs could well fit the bill.
The address is 1 Capella Place, located between Wattle Downs and Manukau Golf Course, which can be seen from the house.
Within a short walk from the local shops and Clayton Park Primary School, it occupies a 610 square metre corner section so it has plenty of street frontage and room to park several vehicles off the road. However, the rear garden is totally fenced, so there’s plenty of privacy too.
The weatherboard home has three bedrooms in the main body of the house, while a path off the big rear deck leads to a large sleepout. This is divided into two rooms, and with full power and phone connections, would make an ideal work-from-home base or extra accommodation for family.
Inside the house, all three bedrooms have smartly polished timber floors and builtin wardrobes, the main bedroom having a double.
A central hall leads into an open plan living and dining area, connected by a bar partition to a good-sized kitchen which has been modernised in recent times.
It has an electric benchtop hob, rangehood, stainless steel wall oven, stainless twin sink, pantry, and lots of bench space.
It’s close to all the entertaining areas – the lounge with its woodburner for winter; the covered rear deck which has been strengthened so that a spa can be fitted; and the aluminium framed conservatory. This front room gets all the afternoon sun and has a brand new roof – so between the deck and conservatory, there’s an allday spot for relaxing.
There is also a standard bathroom, separate toilet, and a good sized laundry.
Underneath the house, where there used to be a garage, we find more rumpus and storage space. These rooms are also wired for phone and Sky, so there is plenty of potential.
A large lockup garden shed, and dry wood storage under the deck, complete the picture.
The vendors are relocating to Australia, so are serious about selling – the property is listed at $ 329,000.
